James Spader, Zooey Deschanel, Ben McKenzie

Each week, executive editor Adam Bryant satisfies your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Do you have any new info on The Blacklist's new season? —  Roger
How about some exclusive casting news? Tony-nominated Broadway veteran Norm Lewis — who is currently starring in the title role of The Phantom of the Opera and did a stint last season on Scandal — has been tapped to play J.P. Laskin, a business associate of Red's who doesn't exactly agree with his recent moves in the ongoing war with Berlin. In fact, I hear Laskin may even be tempted to switch sides. Of course, once Red finds out about the betrayal, he'll probably make the choice for him. Perhaps playing a "phantom" will come in handy!  

I'm really curious to see how Nick and Jess are doing after their break-up last season on
 New Girl. What will their dynamic be like when the show returns? — Lindsay
Four months have passed since Nick and Jess were last romantically involved, but unfortunately for Jess, it's been a bit of a slow summer in the love department... read more

Survivor

It's a family affair this fall as Survivor storms the beaches of Nicaragua for Survivor: San Juan del Sur. The 29th season of the CBS reality franchise (premiering Wednesday, Sept. 24, 8/7c) resurrects last year's fan-favorite Blood vs. Water twist, this time pitting 18 brand new contestants against each other and their family members.

Mega Buzz: Diaries' Changes, NCIS: LA's Throwdown and a Chicago Fire Accident

Paul Wesley, Daniela Ruah, Taylor Kinney

Each week, executive editor Adam Bryant satisfies your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Any scoop on The Vampire Diaries? — Jessica
You've probably already Season 6's first teaser, which features Stefan telling Elena to move on. Well, there's a reason their convo wasn't face-to-face. When the season begins, Stefan will definitely not be anywhere near Mystic Falls. In fact, he will have taken up a surprising new profession in his new "home." And while we're the topic of professions, Alaric also has a new job. Hey, newly resurrected vampires have rent to pay too!

How long will Talia be sticking around on
 NCIS: LA? — Mary
Sorry, Densi 'shippers: It doesn't look like Talia (Mercedes Masohn) is going anywhere soon.... read more

Sneak Peek: Scott Bakula Previews NCIS: New Orleans

Scott Bakula

If you're seeking a metaphor for acting, you couldn't do much better than the body-jumping premise of Quantum Leap. In the 21 years since that series went off the air, its star, Scott Bakula, has leaped into a striking array of characters, with an initial emphasis on more sci-fi (Star Trek: Enterprise) eventually offset by a turn toward naturalistic dramedy (Men of a Certain Age). But playing a cop on a network procedural? Inexplicably, that seemingly inevitable move had proven a leap too far.

This oversight has finally been rectified with Bakula's role as the lead in NCIS: New Orleans, premiering on CBS Sept. 23 in the coveted Tuesday time slot immediately following the franchise's flagship series...
